So, what could happen? “If the brake booster pump stops operating, multiple warning lights and messages will illuminate, and/or audible chimes may sound. Braking assist could be lost completely after several brake pedal applications, causing an increase in the vehicles stopping distance, increasing the risk of an accident” Toyota said it is recall notice.

Toyota said the vehicles being recalled were all manufactured between April and May 2019 and that there have been no known incidents because of the issue. Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted and advised to visit their nearest Toyota dealership and have the recall work performed free of charge.
